Are you familiar with "Sing the Word from A-Z"? Many of those exact Scriptures are put to song. My kids love them!

Great verses! Also good to remember when we are struggling to keep His commandments and burdened with guilt over our sins:

Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through him who gives me strength."

Ephesians 2: 8-9 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast."

Thank you! These are great- have you ever seen the book Instructions for Righteousness? You can read more here. I have it- somewhere. It got packed up in one of our moves when the kids were smaller and weren't quite ready for it yet (the method of using the scriptures with specific sins), but it is REALLY good. If I don't find it by the spring I'm going to order another copy myself!
